In the virtual audiovisual universe of social networks, Instagram stories seem to occupy an unnoble place. We can say that it is to cinema what the post is to advertising - it is not the object in itself, it is not the objective matter of the work, it is a lure, a decoy, an entrepôt, a byproduct of the productive chain that involves the work on the networks. According to this secondary role, unlike the post, it is notable for its non-permanent nature, lasting only 24 hours. Within the volatile frivolity of internet audiovisual production, it still preserves for itself the authorial mark - it has a signature and an address - and thus places itself below the GIF, the Sticker, and the meme - in an imagined periodic table of virtual audiovisual elements. The show intends to make perennial the work - the stories - of 5 artists with absolutely distinct productions: Adriano Costa, Alberto Simon, Luiza Crosman, Julia Angulo and Felipe Barsuglia.
